Greek Mountain Tea, South (Sideritis syriaca) potted plant, organic
Family: Mint (Lamiaceae)
Hardy to Zones 7 to 10
Woody perennial growing to 18 inches, native to Kriti, Lebanon-Syria and Turkey. The plant is white leaved, as soft and downy as wooly lamb’s ears, and quite low-lying. I always keep a lookout for new-to-me Mediterranean herbs, and frankly I believe this one to be one of the most significant ones since … rosemary. A comely plant, highly desired for those of us blessed with hot, dry summers and cool, moist winters. A great-tasting tea herb with salubrious medicinal applications. The tea of dried flowering tops is used for treating colds and restless insomnia. Plant prefers full sun and very fast draining soil, being drought tolerant once established. Space plants 18 inches apart.
Potted plant, Certified Organically grown
